Symantec and MSN extend agreement for Hotmail protection
Posted on 24-Feb-2005 08:35 | Tags Filed under: News



Symantec Corp. is extending its licensing agreement with MSN for Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam. Since November 2002, Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam has been used by MSN Hotmail to help detect and stop spam messages before they entered MSN Hotmail customers' in-boxes.

Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam will continue to filter spam at the incoming SMTP gateway, before it's delivered to MSN Hotmail customers' accounts. According to Symantec, the solution's technology features high detection rates, the industry's highest accuracy rate against false positives (99.9999 percent), and the ability to handle large e-mail volume. Backed by Symantec Brightmail Reputation Services, Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam provides customers with protection against unsolicited junk e-mail by leveraging information collected from the Symantec Probe Network, which attracts spam from 20 different countries around the world.

"As spam continues to be a growing and evolving threat that requires protection at different points in the computing environment, Symantec is dedicated to providing customers with comprehensive solutions that reliably combat the problem with the latest spam fighting technology," said Enrique Salem, senior vice president, network and gateway solutions, Symantec. "We are proud to continue our relationship with MSN through Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam, and we look forward to continuing to create a more productive communications experience for consumers."
